The 20th Anniversary was a pivotal point that would forever change how I look at “A Christmas Story.”
Here’s what happened …
In my very first event in 2006, I met over 3000 fans over a weekend. I was simply baffled how this movie became so beloved by so many people. We continued to do events year after year until early 2019 my Marketing Coach for my Fitness Business did a backflip when he learned I was “Grover Dill” from his all-time favorite Christmas Movie. He brought to my attention that literally millions of fans will never get a chance to meet, hang out, and buy collectibles from us because events may be too far, or too expensive for families to go. Even then, if they do spend $1000s of dollars they only get to spend 5, maybe 10 minutes getting to know us. That’s it.
The need for a solution was more apparent than ever! And he said, “I have an idea.”
Long story short, A Christmas Story Family was born.
My community and events help every A Christmas Story fan who loves Christmas share their love and collectibles with other A Christmas Story Fans in a safe, friendly, family environment. It helps every fan who wants to be in touch with the legends of the movie and stay engaged all year long. It satisfies those who wish to create new lifelong memories. And most importantly, it helps those who desire to relive the best memories of their childhood.
And that’s because it’s based on simple fundamentals that will never stop working, rather than all the nonsense you hear from so-called communities and museums or those trying to capitalize on the magic from the movie.
I don’t care what your situation is. It doesn’t matter if you’re struggling financially or you’re the wolf of wall street...
...or if your family isn’t as strong as you would like it to be... or maybe you want your children to have similar experiences and memories as you did growing up. And think to yourself, “There’s no reason why my children have to only be subjected to the crazy state of the world right now.” ...or maybe you simply have never been able to engage with the cast without having to travel across the world and stand in a long line at an event or comic con just so that you can have two quick minutes with your childhood memory.
Forget all that. None of that is necessary. You’ve always known there must be a better way. Here’s where we make this happen for you and your family.
A Christmas Story Family
=Love. =Passion. =Community.

Well, you know who we are. We’re a bunch of bullies with green teeth and yellow eyes. We’ll stop at nothing short of getting that sweet Official Red Ryder carbine-action two-hundred shot range model air rifle without the fear of it shooting our eyes out. We're not afraid to take action on any triple dog dare even if our tongues will pay the price. We walk in pride even though we can’t put our arms down. We selflessly make momma proud by being mommy’s little piggy. And when technology isn’t perfect and 🤬 breaks we weave a tapestry of obscenities that as far as we know are still hanging in space over Lake Michigan. And all though mom used up all the glue on purpose… somehow we still managed to bring us all together to create this Major Award! It must be Italian: Fra-gee-lay
